This flourless peanut butter cookie recipe is delightfully simple and naturally gluten-free. These cookies are easily made with ingredients that are probably already in your pantry, making them perfect for when you want to bake a sweet gluten-free treat without heading to the store first. Top your easy gluten-free peanut butter cookies with a sprinkle of freshly-ground sea salt right before baking to give them a delightfully sweet and salty finish. We love pairing these cookies with vanilla ice cream for peanut butter cookie ice cream sandwiches or enjoying them on their own with a refreshing glass of cold milk.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Help your cookies bake evenly by using a cookie dough scoop to keep them all the same size. If you don’t have one handy, an ice cream scoop will work as well.
  • tip 2
    Spoon a little gluten-free vanilla ice cream between two peanut butter cookies and make delicious peanut butter cookie ice cream sandwiches. Roll your ice cream sandwich in chocolate chips to add a delightful chocolate crunch.
